Malco, short for “Mark and Al’s Garage Company,” in honor of its founders, is a name that many tradesmen know and trust. In 1950, a young steel supply salesman named Mark Keymer set his mind on marketing a pipe crimper that he had invented which was designed to make it easier to install the metal ductwork used in forced air heating systems. His tool was a success, and the rest, as they say, is history.
Ever since their beginnings 70 years ago, Malco has stood for high quality in innovative, American made tools that are intended to outperform the competition and last a lifetime. Malco Tools are still made right here in America, and are some of the highest-quality sheet metal tools available to the modern consumer.
